Leg of lamb (slow cooked) 7 hours

5 lbs bone in leg of lamb
½ cup Olga Greek Extra virgin olive oil
8 garlic cloves
Thyme
Rosemary
½ Tsp Salt
½ Tsp Pepper
1 Tsp Oregano

Preheat oven to 500F. Mix your marinade of olive oil, salt, pepper and oregano in a bowl. With a small knife make small slits in leg of lamb so you can slide slivers of Garlic into lamb. Pour your marinade over lamb and rub into meat on all sides. Place on rack in a pan and add several sprigs of thyme and rosemary on sides of lamb. Add about a cup of wine to bottom and place in heated oven. Cook at 500 F for about 20 minutes and then lower temp to 275 F for the next 6 hours and 30 minutes. Remove lamb and let set for 10 minutes before carving. The lamb will be melting off the bone.

Suggested wine pairing: Monemvasia St. George red or Moschofilero white (available at www.greekfoodandwine.com)
